    Al Franken Explains Net Neutrality To Ted Cruz

    Sen Al Franken (D-Minn.) responded on Sunday to a Washington Post op-ed in which Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) wrote that net neutrality is "Obamacare for the internet".

    Franken said Cruz "doesn't understand" what net neutrality is.

    "He has it completely wrong and he just doesn't understand what this issue is," Franken told Candy Crowley on CNN's "State of the Union".

    Ted Cruz isn't a stupid guy but he's totally wrong on this issue.

    I believe that we'll hear more from him on this. This is a very important issue to a lot of people.

    Here's what I know about net neutrality. It's fine now. Don't screw with it.

    Right. The internet was just fine with net neutrality, so let's keep it the way it was.

    it's sad that not ruining the internet by adding slow lanes is even debatable, and that it has been reduced to food for hyperpartisans. sad, but not unexpected. our duopoly sucks so much. national interests seem to take a back seat to partisanship by default.

    Either Cruz is talking out of the wrong end again, or he's been bought and paid for by the major ISPs.

    All I know is I like the internet the way it is. If this law changes something I don't want it. If the law guarantees the internet will remain as is and codifies it, then that is good.

    I really know nothing about the act, but I do know I don't trust either Cruz or Franken and I would never take either's word as gospel.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Here's the thing:

    You liked the internet the way it was. The internet as you know it grew and flourished under net neutrality. It's something you always had, until very recently. A vote for net neutrality is a vote to keep things they way they were.

    Net neutrality absolutely codifies that it remains the way it should be: how it has always been.

    You think we would be better off with a one party system?
